Jim Beam Bourbon Boot Camp
Recently I was invited with a select group to the SpiritHouse in Toronto to join an evening of bourbon mixology and food that is paired or infused with Jim Beam bourbon. The evening had 2 special guest that included Frederick Booker Noe III (@FredBNoe) the grandson of Jim Beam and Matt Jones (@Whisky_Chef) a Beam Global Ambassador.
I had the opportunity to try various bourbon mix drinks that evening. One of my favourites was the cocktail with triple sec and lime. It had a citrus flavouring which was different for me when tasting bourbons and whisky. I also got to try a bourbon flavoured brisket slider.

The evening included a Jim Beam Bourbon tasting. We got to try 3 different Bourbons. 1- Jim Beam White 2- Jim Beam Devil's Cut 3- Knob Creek Bourbon. My favourite of the 3 bourbons was the 9 year old Knob Creek Bourbon.
Overall it was a fun evening of food and bourbon. I had the opportunity to enjoy the evening with quite a few friends from Twitter so it was good times all around. Thanks to Jim Beam and SpiritHouse for being great host.
